Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land U.S. Media & the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land uncovers distortion in U.S. media that reinforce false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This video explains how - via manipulated language, framing and context - the Israeli occupation of the West Bank & Gaza remains hidden in our news. Worse still, the Israeli colonization of the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” comes across in distorted American media as “defensive” rather than “offensive.” This celebrated documentary charges U.S. journalists with complicity in Israel's PR campaign. [ Rick Steves – well-known travel guide, host & author – cited this video as his “eye opener.” He admitted being “duped” by Israeli propaganda until watching Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land ] Shown in two parts; refer to http://www.mediaed.org/wp/about-mef Interviewees in documentary include Seth Ackerman, Mjr. Stav Adivi, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, Hanan Ashrawi, Noam Chomsky, Robert Fisk, Neve Gordon, Toufic Haddad, Sam Husseini, Hussein Ibish, Robert Jensen, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Karen Pfeifer, Alisa Solomon, and Gila Svirsky.
